Canadian and U.S. Chief Investment Officers Host Conference Call

TORONTO, Nov. 3 /CNW/ -

    
    WHAT:

    BMO to host a conference call discussing economic and investment outlook.

    Despite a recent dip, equity markets are up strongly since their March
lows and economies across the globe are slowly gaining traction. Join Canadian
and U.S. Chief Investment Officers from BMO Harris Private Banking and Harris
Private Bank to discuss their economic outlook, prospects for recovery, and
asset allocation of investment portfolios that best align with this outlook.

    CIOs Paul Taylor and Jack Ablin will provide a market outlook and comment
    on:

    -  The tailwinds supporting the global equity markets and economic
       recovery over the next 12 months.

    -  Risks that could nudge the economy back into recession

    -  Factors which underlie the case for a biased equity allocation within
       a balanced investment portfolio

    For more commentary and analysis on the Canadian and U.S. markets and what
this means for investors, media are invited to participate in an interactive
media conference call at 12 p.m. EST on Wednesday, November 4, 2009.
